I regret that the colours here might seem a little faint. Oddly, when painting my perception was otherwise- that the picture had van Gogh-ian vigour about it, and erred on the side unruliness. It`s alarming how unreliable  judgments of the moment can be. since my return to Brazil the picture seems to have changes into something much more polite, more drawing-room than the one I had originally worked on.

This is the case with many pictures and I  post them in a slow trickle, so as to give my perceptions time to act and filter out the weaker ones.

I took buses to get above the town, and to visit some ruins which were not close and where it rained futriously. The villages above the town have spectacular views and are nice places for painting.
